Tara, huh?

I bet she gets turned. I predicted that during the ending credits for the S4 finale. :lol:

And what it seems Pam will be her maker... Allan Ball teased in the latest issue of TVGuide mag (link for the scans here) that Pam will have a new vampire in her life while Eric is away with Bill and the Authority... and in the 1st season 5 promo we see Pam at Sookie's house, wearing the same clothes she was wearing in the season 4 finale... :hmm:

I def think there no other way to go with Tara that wouldn't be boring. I really think it's a good idea, because of the irony on both sides (Tara and Pam) that also adds onto Pam and Eric's stories of what it means to be a vampire and to have a relationship with your maker and vamp siblings...and for Tara to turn around and reexamine her whole life and her previous perspectives...you know, so she can be fun! :P

But I still wonder if there will be something non traditionally vampire about Tara...something off.

Thanks for the episode synopsis! :thumbsup: They sound really really good! :D

Wow that''s a lot of info in those summaries! :w00t: Thanks for the update Miss Ford! :thumbsup: It looks like Roman is there at least till episode six...but I remember reading the brief synopsis for episode 7, in which almost sounds like Roman is gone, as "the Authority moves in a different direction"...I read we may meet Lilith from a TV Guide Spoiler. I suspect Salome! Both Lilith and Salome in Biblical/Ancient Culture have been described in some cases as "sacred prostitutes"...so it could be a connection. I am also glad that Pam seems to get along with Tara and Tara is trying to adapt to her new life! Looks like episode five Sookies reunited with Eric and Bill again :whistle: -And who the heck are Ruby Jean and J.D.? :lol:

yes, it looks like in episode 7 Roman will go... it says somewhere that the Authority will get a new leader or something like that :/

and yes, it seems they casted a Lilith, she will be played by a actress from General Hospital... can't wait for that :thumbsup:
